Atletico Madrid will hold out for a world-record transfer fee of £110million for Chelsea target Jan Oblak.
Oblak is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world and many of Europe’s top clubs have been linked with a move for him.
Chelsea have reportedly shown the most interest in the 27-year-old, who is a prime candidate to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Blues would have to match Oblak’s £110m release clause to hold contract talks with the Slovenia international.
Atletico won’t budge on the price tag either given how badly their finances have been hit by the effects of coronavirus. The LaLiga club cut player wages during the shutdown in Spain but a lack of matchday revenue has hit them hard.
Frank Lampard, according to Goal, is said to be keen on the idea of Oblak being in place by the start of next season.
